UEFA and WWF in collaboration with Green Sports Alliance have published a report on sport and environmental sustainability.

A new report by UEFA and its associated social responsibility partner World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF) shows how sport can contribute to sustainability and tackle climate change at all levels, from the grassroots to the elite.

The report, 'Playing for Our Planet', focuses on environmental initiatives taking place across sport in Europe and beyond, and has been produced by UEFA and WWF in collaboration with the Green Sports Alliance.

It highlights good practices in sustainable sports to emphasise the commitment made by many sports to local communities and the planet.

The report examines the link between sports and environmental issues, and stresses the impact that the sector has, as well as its unique power to raise awareness and promote sustainability to fans in Europe and beyond.

'Playing for Our Planet' features 25 examples of sports stakeholders, including UEFA, who are committed to reducing the environmental impact of their operations – leading by example in the fight against pressing environmental challenges, such as climate change and ocean plastics.
